Yavapai Indian Foundation Mission
The Yavapai Indian Foundation, founded in 2008 as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt charity, provides direction, planning, and leadership, as well as funding resources and philanthropic support, to assist the Yavapai Nation and its people.
Our mission is to foster generational sustainability and cultural preservation by providing programs and support to the leaders of tomorrow and the elders of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation.
Building the Future
The Fort McDowell Yavapai take great pride in our community. We are proud of our economic development, and the continuing expansion of direct services; services that meet the changing needs of all tribal members, while preserving our traditional values. Our objectives, listed below, are designed to honor our past and build a strong, stable future for the generations to come. We are funding our objectives through the Heritage Campaign.
